14 years agocompiler: introduce __used and __maybe_unused
David Rientjes [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:35:27 +0000]
compiler: introduce __used and __maybe_unused

__used is defined to be __attribute__((unused)) for all pre-3.3 gcc
compilers to suppress warnings for unused functions because perhaps they
are referenced only in inline assembly.  It is defined to be
__attribute__((used)) for gcc 3.3 and later so that the code is still
emitted for such functions.

__maybe_unused is defined to be __attribute__((unused)) for both function
and variable use if it could possibly be unreferenced due to the evaluation
of preprocessor macros.  Function prototypes shall be marked with
__maybe_unused if the actual definition of the function is dependant on
preprocessor macros.

No update to compiler-intel.h is necessary because ICC supports both
__attribute__((used)) and __attribute__((unused)) as specified by the gcc
manual.

__attribute_used__ is deprecated and will be removed once all current
code is converted to using __used.

Roman Zippel [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:35:17 +0000]
rename thread_info to stack

This finally renames the thread_info field in task structure to stack, so that
the assumptions about this field are gone and archs have more freedom about
placing the thread_info structure.

Nonbroken archs which have a proper thread pointer can do the access to both
current thread and task structure via a single pointer.

It'll allow for a few more cleanups of the fork code, from which e.g.  ia64
could benefit.

14 years agoMove remote node draining out of slab allocators
Christoph Lameter [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:35:14 +0000]
Move remote node draining out of slab allocators

Currently the slab allocators contain callbacks into the page allocator to
perform the draining of pagesets on remote nodes.  This requires SLUB to have
a whole subsystem in order to be compatible with SLAB.  Moving node draining
out of the slab allocators avoids a section of code in SLUB.

Move the node draining so that is is done when the vm statistics are updated.
At that point we are already touching all the cachelines with the pagesets of
a processor.

Add a expire counter there.  If we have to update per zone or global vm
statistics then assume that the pageset will require subsequent draining.

The expire counter will be decremented on each vm stats update pass until it
reaches zero.  Then we will drain one batch from the pageset.  The draining
will cause vm counter updates which will then cause another expiration until
the pcp is empty.  So we will drain a batch every 3 seconds.

Note that remote node draining is a somewhat esoteric feature that is required
on large NUMA systems because otherwise significant portions of system memory
can become trapped in pcp queues.  The number of pcp is determined by the
number of processors and nodes in a system.  A system with 4 processors and 2
nodes has 8 pcps which is okay.  But a system with 1024 processors and 512
nodes has 512k pcps with a high potential for large amount of memory being
caught in them.

14 years agovmstat: use our own timer events
Christoph Lameter [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:35:12 +0000]
vmstat: use our own timer events

vmstat is currently using the cache reaper to periodically bring the
statistics up to date.  The cache reaper does only exists in SLUB as a way to
provide compatibility with SLAB.  This patch removes the vmstat calls from the
slab allocators and provides its own handling.

The advantage is also that we can use a different frequency for the updates.
Refreshing vm stats is a pretty fast job so we can run this every second and
stagger this by only one tick.  This will lead to some overlap in large
systems.  F.e a system running at 250 HZ with 1024 processors will have 4 vm
updates occurring at once.

However, the vm stats update only accesses per node information.  It is only
necessary to stagger the vm statistics updates per processor in each node.  Vm
counter updates occurring on distant nodes will not cause cacheline
contention.

We could implement an alternate approach that runs the first processor on each
node at the second and then each of the other processor on a node on a
subsequent tick.  That may be useful to keep a large amount of the second free
of timer activity.  Maybe the timer folks will have some feedback on this one?

Nate Diller [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:35:07 +0000]
fs: convert core functions to zero_user_page

It's very common for file systems to need to zero part or all of a page,
the simplist way is just to use kmap_atomic() and memset().  There's
actually a library function in include/linux/highmem.h that does exactly
that, but it's confusingly named memclear_highpage_flush(), which is
descriptive of *how* it does the work rather than what the *purpose* is.
So this patchset renames the function to zero_user_page(), and calls it
from the various places that currently open code it.

This first patch introduces the new function call, and converts all the
core kernel callsites, both the open-coded ones and the old
memclear_highpage_flush() ones.  Following this patch is a series of
conversions for each file system individually, per AKPM, and finally a
patch deprecating the old call.  The diffstat below shows the entire
patchset.

14 years agoFUTEX: new PRIVATE futexes
Eric Dumazet [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:35:04 +0000]
FUTEX: new PRIVATE futexes

  Analysis of current linux futex code :
  --------------------------------------

A central hash table futex_queues[] holds all contexts (futex_q) of waiting
threads.

Each futex_wait()/futex_wait() has to obtain a spinlock on a hash slot to
perform lookups or insert/deletion of a futex_q.

When a futex_wait() is done, calling thread has to :

1) - Obtain a read lock on mmap_sem to be able to validate the user pointer
     (calling find_vma()). This validation tells us if the futex uses
     an inode based store (mapped file), or mm based store (anonymous mem)

2) - compute a hash key

3) - Atomic increment of reference counter on an inode or a mm_struct

4) - lock part of futex_queues[] hash table

5) - perform the test on value of futex.
(rollback is value != expected_value, returns EWOULDBLOCK)
(various loops if test triggers mm faults)

6) queue the context into hash table, release the lock got in 4)

7) - release the read_lock on mmap_sem

   <block>

8) Eventually unqueue the context (but rarely, as this part ┬ámay be done
   by the futex_wake())

Futexes were designed to improve scalability but current implementation has
various problems :

- Central hashtable :

  This means scalability problems if many processes/threads want to use
  futexes at the same time.
  This means NUMA unbalance because this hashtable is located on one node.

- Using mmap_sem on every futex() syscall :

  Even if mmap_sem is a rw_semaphore, up_read()/down_read() are doing atomic
  ops on mmap_sem, dirtying cache line :
    - lot of cache line ping pongs on SMP configurations.

  mmap_sem is also extensively used by mm code (page faults, mmap()/munmap())
  Highly threaded processes might suffer from mmap_sem contention.

  mmap_sem is also used by oprofile code. Enabling oprofile hurts threaded
  programs because of contention on the mmap_sem cache line.

- Using an atomic_inc()/atomic_dec() on inode ref counter or mm ref counter:
  It's also a cache line ping pong on SMP. It also increases mmap_sem hold time
  because of cache misses.

Most of these scalability problems come from the fact that futexes are in
one global namespace.  As we use a central hash table, we must make sure
they are all using the same reference (given by the mm subsystem).  We
chose to force all futexes be 'shared'.  This has a cost.

But fact is POSIX defined PRIVATE and SHARED, allowing clear separation,
and optimal performance if carefuly implemented.  Time has come for linux
to have better threading performance.

The goal is to permit new futex commands to avoid :
 - Taking the mmap_sem semaphore, conflicting with other subsystems.
 - Modifying a ref_count on mm or an inode, still conflicting with mm or fs.

This is possible because, for one process using PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE
futexes, we only need to distinguish futexes by their virtual address, no
matter the underlying mm storage is.

If glibc wants to exploit this new infrastructure, it should use new
_PRIVATE futex subcommands for PTHREAD_PROCESS_PRIVATE futexes.  And be
prepared to fallback on old subcommands for old kernels.  Using one global
variable with the FUTEX_PRIVATE_FLAG or 0 value should be OK.

PTHREAD_PROCESS_SHARED futexes should still use the old subcommands.

Compatibility with old applications is preserved, they still hit the
scalability problems, but new applications can fly :)

Note : the same SHARED futex (mapped on a file) can be used by old binaries
*and* new binaries, because both binaries will use the old subcommands.

Note : Vast majority of futexes should be using PROCESS_PRIVATE semantic,
as this is the default semantic. Almost all applications should benefit
of this changes (new kernel and updated libc)

Some bench results on a Pentium M 1.6 GHz (SMP kernel on a UP machine)

14 years agoMake futex_wait() use an hrtimer for timeout
Pierre Peiffer [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:35:02 +0000]
Make futex_wait() use an hrtimer for timeout

This patch modifies futex_wait() to use an hrtimer + schedule() in place of
schedule_timeout().

schedule_timeout() is tick based, therefore the timeout granularity is the
tick (1 ms, 4 ms or 10 ms depending on HZ).  By using a high resolution timer
for timeout wakeup, we can attain a much finer timeout granularity (in the
microsecond range).  This parallels what is already done for futex_lock_pi().

The timeout passed to the syscall is no longer converted to jiffies and is
therefore passed to do_futex() and futex_wait() as an absolute ktime_t
therefore keeping nanosecond resolution.

Also this removes the need to pass the nanoseconds timeout part to
futex_lock_pi() in val2.

In futex_wait(), if there is no timeout then a regular schedule() is
performed.  Otherwise, an hrtimer is fired before schedule() is called.

14 years agoknfsd: avoid Oops if buggy userspace performs confusing filehandle->dentry mapping
NeilBrown [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:57 +0000]
knfsd: avoid Oops if buggy userspace performs confusing filehandle->dentry mapping

When a lookup request arrives, nfsd uses information provided by userspace
(mountd) to find the right filesystem.

It then assumes that the same filehandle type as the incoming filehandle can
be used to create an outgoing filehandle.

However if mountd is buggy, or maybe just being creative, the filesystem may
not support that filesystem type, and the kernel could oops, particularly if
'ex_uuid' is NULL but a FSID_UUID* filehandle type is used.

So add some proper checking that the fsid version/type from the incoming
filehandle is actually supportable, and ignore that information if it isn't
supportable.

14 years agoknfsd: fix resource leak resulting in module refcount leak for rpcsec_gss_krb5.ko
Frank Filz [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:53 +0000]
knfsd: fix resource leak resulting in module refcount leak for rpcsec_gss_krb5.ko

I have been investigating a module reference count leak on the server for
rpcsec_gss_krb5.ko.  It turns out the problem is a reference count leak for
the security context in net/sunrpc/auth_gss/svcauth_gss.c.

The problem is that gss_write_init_verf() calls gss_svc_searchbyctx() which
does a rsc_lookup() but never releases the reference to the context.  There is
another issue that rpc.svcgssd sets an "end of time" expiration for the
context

By adding a cache_put() call in gss_svc_searchbyctx(), and setting an
expiration timeout in the downcall, cache_clean() does clean up the context
and the module reference count now goes to zero after unmount.

I also verified that if the context expires and then the client makes a new
request, a new context is established.

Here is the patch to fix the kernel, I will start a separate thread to discuss
what expiration time should be set by rpc.svcgssd.

14 years agoRPC: add wrapper for svc_reserve to account for checksum
Jeff Layton [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:50 +0000]
RPC: add wrapper for svc_reserve to account for checksum

When the kernel calls svc_reserve to downsize the expected size of an RPC
reply, it fails to account for the possibility of a checksum at the end of
the packet.  If a client mounts a NFSv2/3 with sec=krb5i/p, and does I/O
then you'll generally see messages similar to this in the server's ring
buffer:

RPC request reserved 164 but used 208

While I was never able to verify it, I suspect that this problem is also
the root cause of some oopses I've seen under these conditions:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=227726

This is probably also a problem for other sec= types and for NFSv4.  The
large reserved size for NFSv4 compound packets seems to generally paper
over the problem, however.

This patch adds a wrapper for svc_reserve that accounts for the possibility
of a checksum.  It also fixes up the appropriate callers of svc_reserve to
call the wrapper.  For now, it just uses a hardcoded value that I
determined via testing.  That value may need to be revised upward as things
change, or we may want to eventually add a new auth_op that attempts to
calculate this somehow.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a good way to reliably determine
the expected checksum length prior to actually calculating it, particularly
with schemes like spkm3.

The NFSv2 and NFSv3 servers do not handle WRITE requests for 0 bytes

14 years agomake cancel_rearming_delayed_work() reliable
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:46 +0000]
make cancel_rearming_delayed_work() reliable

Thanks to Jarek Poplawski for the ideas and for spotting the bug in the
initial draft patch.

cancel_rearming_delayed_work() currently has many limitations, because it
requires that dwork always re-arms itself via queue_delayed_work().  So it
hangs forever if dwork doesn't do this, or cancel_rearming_delayed_work/
cancel_delayed_work was already called.  It uses flush_workqueue() in a
loop, so it can't be used if workqueue was freezed, and it is potentially
live- lockable on busy system if delay is small.

With this patch cancel_rearming_delayed_work() doesn't make any assumptions
about dwork, it can re-arm itself via queue_delayed_work(), or
queue_work(), or do nothing.

As a "side effect", cancel_work_sync() was changed to handle re-arming works
as well.

Disadvantages:

- this patch adds wmb() to insert_work().

- slowdowns the fast path (when del_timer() succeeds on entry) of
  cancel_rearming_delayed_work(), because wait_on_work() is called
  unconditionally. In that case, compared to the old version, we are
  doing "unneeded" lock/unlock for each online CPU.

  On the other hand, this means we don't need to use cancel_work_sync()
  after cancel_rearming_delayed_work().

- complicates the code (.text grows by 130 bytes).

14 years agochange kernel threads to ignore signals instead of blocking them
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:37 +0000]
change kernel threads to ignore signals instead of blocking them

Currently kernel threads use sigprocmask(SIG_BLOCK) to protect against
signals.  This doesn't prevent the signal delivery, this only blocks
signal_wake_up().  Every "killall -33 kthreadd" means a "struct siginfo"
leak.

Change kthreadd_setup() to set all handlers to SIG_IGN instead of blocking
them (make a new helper ignore_signals() for that).  If the kernel thread
needs some signal, it should use allow_signal() anyway, and in that case it
should not use CLONE_SIGHAND.

Note that we can't change daemonize() (should die!) in the same way,
because it can be used along with CLONE_SIGHAND.  This means that
allow_signal() still should unblock the signal to work correctly with
daemonize()ed threads.

However, disallow_signal() doesn't block the signal any longer but ignores
it.

NOTE: with or without this patch the kernel threads are not protected from
handle_stop_signal(), this seems harmless, but not good.

Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:33 +0000]
Change reparent_to_init to reparent_to_kthreadd

When a kernel thread calls daemonize, instead of reparenting the thread to
init reparent the thread to kthreadd next to the threads created by
kthread_create.

This is really just a stop gap until daemonize goes away, but it does
ensure no kernel threads are under init and they are all in one place that
is easy to find.

14 years agokthread: don't depend on work queues
Eric W. Biederman [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:32 +0000]
kthread: don't depend on work queues

Currently there is a circular reference between work queue initialization
and kthread initialization.  This prevents the kthread infrastructure from
initializing until after work queues have been initialized.

We want the properties of tasks created with kthread_create to be as close
as possible to the init_task and to not be contaminated by user processes.
The later we start our kthreadd that creates these tasks the harder it is
to avoid contamination from user processes and the more of a mess we have
to clean up because the defaults have changed on us.

So this patch modifies the kthread support to not use work queues but to
instead use a simple list of structures, and to have kthreadd start from
init_task immediately after our kernel thread that execs /sbin/init.

By being a true child of init_task we only have to change those process
settings that we want to have different from init_task, such as our process
name, the cpus that are allowed, blocking all signals and setting SIGCHLD
to SIG_IGN so that all of our children are reaped automatically.

By being a true child of init_task we also naturally get our ppid set to 0
and do not wind up as a child of PID == 1.  Ensuring that tasks generated
by kthread_create will not slow down the functioning of the wait family of
functions.

flush_work_keventd and flush_work.

Also, rename flush_work() to cancel_work_sync() and fix all callers.

14 years agoworkqueue: don't migrate pending works from the dead CPU
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:09 +0000]
workqueue: don't migrate pending works from the dead CPU

Currently CPU_DEAD uses kthread_stop() to stop cwq->thread and then
transfers cwq->worklist to another CPU.  However, it is very unlikely that
worker_thread() will notice kthread_should_stop() before flushing
cwq->worklist.  It is only possible if worker_thread() was preempted after
run_workqueue(cwq), a new work_struct was added, and CPU_DEAD happened
before cwq->thread has a chance to run.

This means that take_over_work() mostly adds unneeded complications.  Note
also that kthread_stop() is not good per se, wake_up_process() may confuse
work->func() if it sleeps waiting for some event.

Remove take_over_work() and migrate_sequence complications.  CPU_DEAD sets
the cwq->should_stop flag (introduced by this patch) and waits for
cwq->thread to flush cwq->worklist and exit.  Because the dead CPU is not
on cpu_online_map, no more works can be added to that cwq.

cpu_populated_map was introduced to optimize for_each_possible_cpu(), it is
not strictly needed, and it is more a documentation in fact.

Saves 418 bytes.

This breaks the "if (cwq->thread == current)" logic in flush_cpu_workqueue()

14 years agoworkqueue: fix flush_workqueue() vs CPU_DEAD race
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:07 +0000]
workqueue: fix flush_workqueue() vs CPU_DEAD race

Many thanks to Srivatsa Vaddagiri for the helpful discussion and for spotting
the bug in my previous attempt.

work->func() (and thus flush_workqueue()) must not use workqueue_mutex,
this leads to deadlock when CPU_DEAD does kthread_stop(). However without
this mutex held we can't detect CPU_DEAD in progress, which can move pending
works to another CPU while the dead one is not on cpu_online_map.

Change flush_workqueue() to use for_each_possible_cpu(). This means that
flush_cpu_workqueue() may hit CPU which is already dead. However in that
case

!list_empty(&cwq->worklist) || cwq->current_work != NULL

means that CPU_DEAD in progress, it will do kthread_stop() + take_over_work()
so we can proceed and insert a barrier. We hold cwq->lock, so we are safe.

Also, add migrate_sequence incremented by take_over_work() under cwq->lock.
If take_over_work() happened before we checked this CPU, we should see the
new value after spin_unlock().

Further possible changes:

remove CPU_DEAD handling (along with take_over_work, migrate_sequence)
from workqueue.c. CPU_DEAD just sets cwq->please_exit_after_flush flag.

CPU_UP_PREPARE->create_workqueue_thread() clears this flag, and creates
the new thread if cwq->thread == NULL.

This way the workqueue/cpu-hotplug interaction is almost zero, workqueue_mutex
just protects "workqueues" list, CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE/CPU_LOCK_RELEASE go away.

14 years agocall cpu_chain with CPU_DOWN_FAILED if CPU_DOWN_PREPARE failed
Heiko Carstens [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:04 +0000]
call cpu_chain with CPU_DOWN_FAILED if CPU_DOWN_PREPARE failed

This makes cpu hotplug symmetrical: if CPU_UP_PREPARE fails we get
CPU_UP_CANCELED, so we can undo what ever happened on PREPARE.  The same
should happen for CPU_DOWN_PREPARE.

14 years agoDefine and use new events,CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and CPU_LOCK_RELEASE
Gautham R Shenoy [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:03 +0000]
Define and use new events,CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and CPU_LOCK_RELEASE

This is an attempt to provide an alternate mechanism for postponing
a hotplug event instead of using a global mechanism like lock_cpu_hotplug.

The proposal is to add two new events namely CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and
CPU_LOCK_RELEASE. The notification for these two events would be sent
out before and after a cpu_hotplug event respectively.

During the CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE event, a cpu-hotplug-aware subsystem is
supposed to acquire any per-subsystem hotcpu mutex ( Eg. workqueue_mutex
in kernel/workqueue.c ).

During the CPU_LOCK_RELEASE release event the cpu-hotplug-aware subsystem
is supposed to release the per-subsystem hotcpu mutex.

The reasons for defining new events as opposed to reusing the existing events
like CPU_UP_PREPARE/CPU_UP_FAILED/CPU_ONLINE for locking/unlocking of
per-subsystem hotcpu mutexes are as follow:

- CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE: All hotcpu mutexes are taken before subsystems
start handling pre-hotplug events like CPU_UP_PREPARE/CPU_DOWN_PREPARE
etc, thus ensuring a clean handling of these events.

- CPU_LOCK_RELEASE: The hotcpu mutexes will be released only after
all subsystems have handled post-hotplug events like CPU_DOWN_FAILED,
CPU_DEAD,CPU_ONLINE etc thereby ensuring that there are no subsequent
clashes amongst the interdependent subsystems after a cpu hotplugs.

This patch also uses __raw_notifier_call chain in _cpu_up to take care
of the dependency between the two consequetive calls to
raw_notifier_call_chain.

14 years agoExtend notifier_call_chain to count nr_calls made
Gautham R Shenoy [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:34:02 +0000]
Extend notifier_call_chain to count nr_calls made

Since 2.6.18-something, the community has been bugged by the problem to
provide a clean and a stable mechanism to postpone a cpu-hotplug event as
lock_cpu_hotplug was badly broken.

This is another proposal towards solving that problem.  This one is along the
lines of the solution provided in kernel/workqueue.c

Instead of having a global mechanism like lock_cpu_hotplug, we allow the
subsytems to define their own per-subsystem hot cpu mutexes.  These would be
taken(released) where ever we are currently calling
lock_cpu_hotplug(unlock_cpu_hotplug).

Also, in the per-subsystem hotcpu callback function,we take this mutex before
we handle any pre-cpu-hotplug events and release it once we finish handling
the post-cpu-hotplug events.  A standard means for doing this has been
provided in [PATCH 2/4] and demonstrated in [PATCH 3/4].

The ordering of these per-subsystem mutexes might still prove to be a
problem, but hopefully lockdep should help us get out of that muddle.

The patch set to be applied against linux-2.6.19-rc5 is as follows:

[PATCH 1/4] : Extend notifier_call_chain with an option to specify the
number of notifications to be sent and also count the
number of notifications actually sent.

[PATCH 2/4] : Define events CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE and CPU_LOCK_RELEASE
and send out notifications for these in _cpu_up and
_cpu_down. This would help us standardise the acquire and
release of the subsystem locks in the hotcpu
callback functions of these subsystems.

[PATCH 3/4] : Eliminate lock_cpu_hotplug from kernel/sched.c.

[PATCH 4/4] : In workqueue_cpu_callback function, acquire(release) the
workqueue_mutex while handling
CPU_LOCK_ACQUIRE(CPU_LOCK_RELEASE).

If the per-subsystem-locking approach survives the test of time, we can expect
a slow phasing out of lock_cpu_hotplug, which has not yet been eliminated in
these patches :)

This patch:

Provide notifier_call_chain with an option to call only a specified number of
notifiers and also record the number of call to notifiers made.

The need for this enhancement was identified in the post entitled
"Slab - Eliminate lock_cpu_hotplug from slab"
(http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/10/28/92) by Ravikiran G Thirumalai and
Andrew Morton.

This patch adds two additional parameters to notifier_call_chain API namely
 - int nr_to_calls : Number of notifier_functions to be called.
       The don't care value is -1.

 - unsigned int *nr_calls : Records the total number of notifier_funtions
    called by notifier_call_chain. The don't care
    value is NULL.

14 years agoimplement flush_work()
Oleg Nesterov [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:52 +0000]
implement flush_work()

A basic problem with flush_scheduled_work() is that it blocks behind _all_
presently-queued works, rather than just the work whcih the caller wants to
flush.  If the caller holds some lock, and if one of the queued work happens
to want that lock as well then accidental deadlocks can occur.

One example of this is the phy layer: it wants to flush work while holding
rtnl_lock().  But if a linkwatch event happens to be queued, the phy code will
deadlock because the linkwatch callback function takes rtnl_lock.

So we implement a new function which will flush a *single* work - just the one
which the caller wants to free up.  Thus we avoid the accidental deadlocks
which can arise from unrelated subsystems' callbacks taking shared locks.

flush_work() non-blockingly dequeues the work_struct which we want to kill,
then it waits for its handler to complete on all CPUs.

Add ->current_work to the "struct cpu_workqueue_struct", it points to
currently running "struct work_struct". When flush_work(work) detects
->current_work == work, it inserts a barrier at the _head_ of ->worklist
(and thus right _after_ that work) and waits for completition. This means
that the next work fired on that CPU will be this barrier, or another
barrier queued by concurrent flush_work(), so the caller of flush_work()
will be woken before any "regular" work has a chance to run.

When wait_on_work() unlocks workqueue_mutex (or whatever we choose to protect
against CPU hotplug), CPU may go away. But in that case take_over_work() will
move a barrier we queued to another CPU, it will be fired sometime, and
wait_on_work() will be woken.

Actually, we are doing cleanup_workqueue_thread()->kthread_stop() before
take_over_work(), so cwq->thread should complete its ->worklist (and thus
the barrier), because currently we don't check kthread_should_stop() in
run_workqueue(). But even if we did, everything should be ok.

cpu_workqueue_struct.  To implement flush_workqueue() we can queue a
barrier work on each CPU and wait for its completition.

The barrier is queued under workqueue_mutex to ensure that per cpu
wq->cpu_wq is alive, we drop this mutex before going to sleep.  If CPU goes
down while we are waiting for completition, take_over_work() will move the
barrier on another CPU, and the handler will wake up us eventually.

By defining the same macros on both AT91 and AVR32, these #ifdefs can

AFS: implement basic file write support

Implement support for writing to regular AFS files, including:

 (1) write

 (2) truncate

 (3) fsync, fdatasync

 (4) chmod, chown, chgrp, utime.

AFS writeback attempts to batch writes into as chunks as large as it can manage
up to the point that it writes back 65535 pages in one chunk or it meets a
locked page.

Furthermore, if a page has been written to using a particular key, then should
another write to that page use some other key, the first write will be flushed
before the second is allowed to take place.  If the first write fails due to a
security error, then the page will be scrapped and reread before the second
write takes place.

If a page is dirty and the callback on it is broken by the server, then the
dirty data is not discarded (same behaviour as NFS).

Shared-writable mappings are not supported by this patch.

platforms, so explicit the type to kill the compiler warnings.

Also consistently use '%Lu' which is unsigned.

It seems that we need to clarify that a patch series is a series of related
patches rather than "here are some of my patches as multiple (numbered)
emails."

fs: use path_walk in do_path_lookup

Since path_walk sets the total_link_count to 0 and calls link_path_walk, we
can just call path_walk directly.

mutex_lock_interruptible(): add __must_check

It's not sane to use mutex_lock_interruptible() and to then ignore the result.

Ditto down_interruptible(), but I'm lazy.

14 years agotty_set_ldisc() receive_room fix
Paul Fulghum [Wed, 9 May 2007 09:33:38 +0000]
tty_set_ldisc() receive_room fix

Fix tty_set_ldisc in tty_io.c so that tty->receive_room is only cleared if
actually changing line disciplines.

Without this fix a problem occurs when requesting the line discipline to
change to the same line discipline.  In this case tty->receive_room is
cleared but ldisc->open() is not called to set tty->receive_room back to a
sane value.  The result is that tty->receive_room is stuck at 0 preventing
the tty flip buffer from passing receive data to the line discipline.

For example: a switch from N_TTY to N_TTY followed by a select() call for
read input results in data never being received because tty->receive_room
is stuck at zero.

A switch from N_TTY to N_TTY followed by a read() call works because the
read() call itself sets tty->receive_room correctly (but select does not).

Previously (< 2.6.18) this was not a problem because the tty flip buffer
pushed data to the line discipline without regard for tty->receive room.

Move sig_kernel_* et al macros to linux/signal.h

This patch moves the sig_kernel_* and related macros from kernel/signal.c
to linux/signal.h, and cleans them up slightly.  I need the sig_kernel_*
macros for default signal behavior in the utrace code, and want to avoid
duplication or overhead to share the knowledge.
